Safety & Insurance on Educational Trips
It is widely recognised the completion of paperwork including risk assessments, along with safety concerns are key reasons that deter many group leaders from organising school trips. The good news is Adaptable Travel are here to help with paperwork, and have great expertise when it comes to risk assessments and safety documentation.
If you need any help with risk assessments, supplier safety audits or filling in LEA forms, then let us know and we will be happy to help. We often find the combination of our comprehensive Safety Management System and our Risk Assessment usually suffice in satisfying the requirements of your school or LEA.
Safety Management System
Our Safety Management System is an externally audited document which ensures the safety of your group, and goes above and beyond the expectations of most schools and LEAs safety requirements.
School Trip Insurance
We believe that safety and enjoyment are equally important when travelling with Adaptable Travel. It is therefore one of our terms and conditions of booking that you have adequate travel insurance in place before you travel with us. We work in partnership with Endsleigh, to offer our participants a policy which has been specifically designed to meet their requirements whilst on their trip.
Policy benefits include:
• Emergency medical cover
• 100 sports and activities covered as standard
• Group money, passport and documents cover
• Cover for travellers up to 85 years old
Any Beneficiary under 18 years of age is exempt from the Important Conditions Relating to Health detailed in the group policy and any pre-existing health conditions will be automatically covered.
This table shows the maximum amounts payable under each section:
This is only a summary of the cover provided. The full policy document can be read in full on the Adaptable Travel website, which can be accessed by clicking the link at the bottom of the page.
NB It is an advantage to take out your travel insurance at the time of booking your trip as cover will commence for pre-departure cancellation from the date you are accepted for cover. This will, therefore, provide cover should you have to cancel your trip for an insured reason such as illness or serious accident preventing you from travelling.
